Beautiful Bears for Beginners

Create your own bright, bold intuitive painting using Acrylic Paint on Canvas

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn to prepare a canvas, color theory basics, mixing of color and basic brush work as you create a painting of a local iconic bear under the expert guidance of local artist Kandice Keith.

You will explore tinting and shading, colors as a value, use of complimentary colors to make your colors ‘pop’ and how and when to use big, bold brushstrokes. Each night you will be led through different exercises to teach you basic techniques while building your confidence as you complete your work of art.
